Today I'm sharing the beautiful home of Mrs. Berry. She loves gorgeous, traditional design but wanted to add in a little farmhouse flair to her lower level. With a mostly neutral palette to begin with, I added in some white and blue to brighten everything a bit and offer a brand new feel to the entire space.
This project was so fun for me because we mainly did furniture and wall décor rearranging and then added just a few simple touches to really pull the entire downstairs together. Mrs. Berry now has a space with a designer's touch while still maintaining her own style and flavor.
And without further ado...
Mrs. Berry and I both fell in love with these fabulous blue and white pillows! They're absolutely stunning and give this already beautiful sofa a new, fresh look.
And anyone who knows me, knows I'm a sucker for a pair of lamps. There wasn't much room for side tables, so floor lamps were the obvious choice for this space. We went with these bronze beauties and The Berrys have already said that they're probably never turning the overhead lights on again. Who could blame them honestly.
There are two more sofas on the other side of this space and they both now have the pleasure of housing these solid blue pillows. I also added these wood frames for a little rustic touch and the photos are from a Mother's Day vacay to Cancun.
If I'm not buying lamps, I'm buying baskets and I'm a firm believer that every family should have a basket of throw blankets in their living room. Snagged this little cutie from Home Goods and he almost didn't make it out of the Design by Dixon household.
Moving into the dining room, we wanted to add more sentimental family photos and also had a BIG wall to fill. So I went with these BIG beauties and I think they turned out so wonderful! These frames are 24x36 and anything smaller would have been overshadowed in this large space. I kept them simple by using sepia photos and white mats and I think they coordinate so nicely with Mrs. Berry's dining set.
On the table, I bought these fantastic lanterns and filled them each with a topiary. Then I placed them on this fun runner with stripes and fringe! These may be my favorite purchase in this project.
I love how each piece brings its own unique flair but also works together with the current décor of the space. I feel like we accomplished the task of a small traditional/farmhouse update with a big impact. What do you think?
